1. Whisk all the ingredients except the salmon in a small bowl until blended. Pour half of this marinade over the salmon, turning until covered. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
2. Place the remaining marinade in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 14 minutes or until the marinade forms a glaze.
3. Pre-heat broiler. Place the salmon on a broiler pan. Broil salmon until cooked through, about 8 minutes.
4. Remove salmon from the broiler. Transfer to a platter and brush glaze over the salmon. Serve immediately with hot steaming rice.
